Junior Leader Food Stand Manager Needed
The Barron County 4-H Junior Leaders Food Stand is a popular stand at the Barron County Fair. It is known for its malts and shakes, and serves other foods in addition. All work in the stand is coordinated by Food Stand Managers, including deciding on menu, shopping, scheduling and training workers, handling money, set up and clean up. Usually, two or three youth take on the duties together, as managers are also expected to coordinate their time at the fair so the stand has a manager at all times.
Junior Leaders Food Stand managers are paid for their time. Managers receive $100 each plus they split 20% of the food stand profits.
Any 4-H youth (16 and older) can apply for the Food Stand Manager position. To be a successful candidate, you should have worked at the food stand previously, have money handling experience and customer service experience. Applicants will be interviewed by the Junior Leaders adult advisors. The application form is due May 5, 2021
Camp Counselor Applications are Due Friday, April 16, via mail, or email. Application can be found here: Camp Counselor Application

Event Funding Request Form **Current 6/2020
*New 4-H Member/Certified Adult Leader Event Funding Forms were updated in 2019, please find current forms below;
Changes have been adopted to our 2019 4-H Member/Certified Adult Leader Event Funding Forms. Please take time to read the new forms included below. The major changes have been highlighted, but include:
- Adults receiving reimbursement must be certified 4-H Adult Leaders and
active on 4-H Online before the event
- Funding will be a reimbursement up to $150 per 4-H member/Certified Adult
- If participating in a National trip, the 4-H Adult Leader’s Council will pay 50% of the trip, but the additional $150 reimbursement is not allowed on that particular trip
- Cost of room is divided by number of 4-H Youth & Certified Adult Leaders
- 4-H members are not eligible for transportation reimbursement. The Certified Adult Leader who transported them would be.
These changes were adopted in order to make it possible for as many youth to have the opportunity for experiences through the 4-H program. The
4-H Adult Leader Council works hard to provide youth with trips, scholarships, and meaningful award ceremonies with fundraising dollars. The reimbursement decrease for 2019 may be able to be adjusted or increased in the future depending on fundraising efforts. Thank you for
understanding and please let us know if you have any questions.
Event funding will take place only in the months of March, June, August, and October for the 2019 year on the 3rd Tuesday of the month at 6:00 p.m. at the Barron County Government Center in the East Conference Room (dates and times subject to change, will notify by Facebook, email, and/or newsletter). Please plan accordingly.
